What It Means To Be A CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator

If you’ve read our about us page, you know that we have earned the title of CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator. However, what you may not know is what that means and why it’s important. There are many roofing companies in Wheaton, IL, but they don’t all hold this title. That’s unfortunate because it shows a high degree of competency and a superior level of industry knowledge.

What is a CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator?

A CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator has passed the Master Shingle Applicator test. The test is based on the Shingle Applicator’s Manual, which is a professional guide that covers all aspects of shingle work. Studying this manual and preparing for the test is the most efficient way for roofing professionals to learn the following:

  • Correct installation procedures.
  • Roofing systems.
  • Estimating.
  • Flashing.
  • Ventilation.
  • Principles of workmanship.

The installation procedures taught in the manual are specific to the types of shingle products from CertainTeed. Most of the general knowledge and educational material applies to any roofing project with a variety of products.

Do the Titles Really Matter?

In addition to earning the CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator title, we are an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor and member of the National Roofing Contractors Association.

It may seem like these are just fancy titles that mean nothing, but they tell our customers that we go the extra mile to fully understand industry standards. We hold ourselves to those standards and often exceed them, but we had to learn them first. Roofing businesses without the big titles haven’t done their homework and may not have the industry knowledge needed to deliver quality work that lasts.
